Keyless Entry Issue
My keyless entry is acting up. Replaced the battery twice with no change. I have already resoldered the connections for the battery clip, and confirmed they are still secure. The doors will not lock or unlock consistently. Sometimes I need to be close, other times far away. Sometimes behind the car, sometimes on the side etc etc.
One thing that does work all the time is the trunk release. Close, far, no matter what side of the car etc.
My wife ran the other remote through the washer some time ago, so I do not have another to test with.
So, what are the odds that the lock and unlock buttons are just going bad on the remote? What are the chances this is a problem with the internal electronics? The doors automatically lock just fine when put into gear, and unlock just fine when in park. Tested the door switches, and they also work fine. Seems to be limited to keyless entry.
